SPA/AAP Pediatric Anesthesiology 2021 Request for PBLD Submissions Submission Deadline July 1, 2020 at 3:00pm EDT You are invited to submit a Problem Based Learning Discussion (PBLD) for consideration for presentation at SPA/AAP Pediatric Anesthesiology 2021. Submissions may be a case or problem that is real or fictitious, and could describe issues related to clinical anesthesia, resident education, medical ethics, or professionalism. Reviewers will score submissions for interest, scientific accuracy, and clarity of thought and expression. Two moderators must be named for each submission, and if accepted, both must agree to participate as moderators for the group discussion at the meeting. Ideally, though not necessarily, one moderator will be an experienced educator, and the other a junior faculty member or a fellow in-training. Senior moderators may not be included on more than TWO PBLD submissions. Please remember that the goal of the PBLD is for the LEARNER to participate in discussing the management options, not for the MODERATOR to tell participants how he/she actually did the case. An effective PBLD: is relevant to the practice of many pediatric anesthesiologists (i.e. not a super rare case) has controversy and/or decision making that should be discussed/debated has some surprises, "twists or turns" has well-written objectives that are covered by the discussion has well selected references Many unusual cases are better suited to a Medically Challenging Case or Case Report/Scientific Abstract instead of a PBLD. Therefore, it is important for the author to demonstrate to the reviewers that the PBLD contains areas for discussion, such as different ways of managing clinical or other issues, depending on personal preference, institutional norms, or country of practice. It is crucial that submissions are carefully proof read for grammatical errors and typos, as carelessly written PBLDs are often automatically rejected. It is also recommended that authors disguise the identity of any real patients by changing demographic details and circumstances of the clinical scenario so as to avoid potential HIPAAA violations. For more information on how to create a great PBLD: https://www.mededportal.org/publication/9371 Institutions/hospitals may submit multiple PBLDs, however, no more than TWO PBLD submissions from an institution/hospital will be accepted for presentation at the meeting.
